essensys joins the largest Global Coworking Event in NYC for third consecutive year

The GCUC (Global Coworking Unconference Conference) strikes back in New York City this spring. essensys is happy to be a top-tier sponsor in our third consecutive year supporting this influential and globally recognized event. Each year the master of the minds converge to discuss all things coworking. From real estate and technology, industry leaders impart invaluable wisdom to novice operators and seasoned professionals.

Coworking Camp for Novices

Are you dreaming of opening a coworking space? Camp GCUC on Day 1 has everything you need to know before launching your new flexible workspace venture. Get expert insight on core topics such as design, technology, real estate and community building before you open a new coworking space.

Commercial Real Estate Insider Knowledge

One of the greatest things about workspace industry events such as GCUC is getting insider information on the topics that can help you grow your workspace brand. This year the agenda topic that will raise eyebrows is Love Notes to Your Landlord and REITs. On Day 2 of this coworking extravaganza, representatives from Savills and Verizon will discuss how landlords are working with operators to fill and maximize their space portfolio. Get the nitty-gritty on tips and tricks, joint ventures and management agreements. Commercial real estate asset holders and investment trusts are no longer dipping their toes in to test the coworking waters – they’re diving in head first. Do your research on the new commercial real estate market players and know what the implications are for coworking operators.

Spicing up your Coworking Life

This year the agenda gets GCUC (yep, it’s pronounced Juicy!). Be prepared to learn how to shake up your design and build a workspace that’s unique and human-focused into the future. Speaking of future, GCUC presents Coworking in the Future City, a discussion on the role that coworking will play in the future. This session will hone in on entrepreneurship and economic stability. If there’s one thing we know, it’s that both were pivotal in driving the success of the coworking office sector.

Flexible Coworking Content

Day 3 of the GCUC conference gives attendees the autonomy to decide what content they want to hear. Pick from Evolution of Coworking, Purposeful Communities, Raising Money (we’ve also got some pointers on this topic), Future City and the human-focused Battling the Loneliness Epidemic.

In the afternoon of the last day, the essence of GCUC comes alive with the unconference session. The conference organizers and MCs take a backseat and give you – the attendees – the chance to submit any topic of discussion. This crowd-sourced content approach stimulates discussion around key coworking matters and enables GCUC attendees to take an active role in driving conversation at the event. It’s a great time to bring up the latest trends or challenges and discuss with industry peers.

Don’t Miss GCUC

Aside from enlightening content and making new coworking friends, get the full GCUC experience with happy hour, the endless supply of snacks and the nourish station, and, of course, meet the vendors. Yes, that’s right, essensys will be on hand in Alcove 2, right next door to our friends at RentShare. Need to send an email or be in touch with your team?
